Keep Left is organised by Solidarity, a socialist group with branches across Australia

We live in a world of instability, inequality and racism. Global capitalism seems on the brink of a new crisis, with Donald Trump’s trade war with China increasing the dangers. Racists and the far right are on the rise from Europe to Brazil. Trump wants to shut the US border to refugees and migrants. And everywhere, Australia’s brutal offshore prison islands to keep out refugees are becoming a model.

The Liberal government here is facing defeat, as rejection of their inequality and rule for the rich grows. But Labor will not deliver unions the right to strike or end offshore detention on Manus and Nauru. Keep Left will discuss the major issues in global and Australian politics, socialist theory and how we can fight for change.

Keep Left is an annual conference of socialist ideas and discussion hosted by Solidarity. Keep Left 2019 will be held at Glebe Town Hall, 160 St Johns Rd from 19-21 April.
